Recent experiments on the dispersal of a dye by chaotic surface waves indicate that the iso-concentration curves exhibit fractal geometry on a significant range of scales. In this letter we offer a rigorous theory in which the dimension of the iso-concentration curves is calculated. It is shown that the results are universal for all types of surface waves without mean advection, and are in good agreement with the experimental measurements.
